<Gangneung>

director's disclaimer

<Gangneung> – A story of one person accepting the era.

Gangneung is a place that has always been pushed back from the priority of development in modern history. Until the Yeongdong Expressway was straightened out in the mid-2000s, it was only reached through the winding Daegwallyeong Road, and perhaps because of its geographical isolation, people also had a somewhat exclusive character.
Even in Gangneung, the wind of development began to blow along with the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. A large amount of capital began to flow into the small and medium-sized tourist city that used to live as tourists during the summer, and large hotels and resorts were built on the beach accordingly. In this way, Gangneung entered an active competitive society that it had never experienced before.

<Gangneung> tells the story of people who adapt to the times. Unlike in the past, supermarkets now have to compete with hypermarkets or convenience stores, and small motels and guesthouses by the sea have to compete with hotels. The time has come for individuals to compete with huge capital. Now, surviving and winning have become synonymous, and it has become a society in which common prosperity and coexistence are no longer possible.

The characters in <Gangneung> also try to resist the changes of the times with their whole body, but in the end, they succumb to the times without even realizing it. Even though they are gangsters, they live with their own rules. In order to survive or have more, they betray their friends for the first time and start killing people for the first time. And the city that seemed like heaven turns into hell.

At some point in your hand, who did your best to simply survive, you may have a blue blade in your hand. I hope that everyone who survives the battle without victory or glory, can enjoy the movie in their own way. Even if it is regret, even if it is comfort.

Through the story that takes place in Gangneung, a large city.

<Gangneung> Director Yoon Young-bin
